    So I was just thinking about this now. I have an iPhone 5 and iPad mini 1st gen, but am looking at iPad Air.

    When I activate the Air, I'll be able to download the iWork and iLife apps for free, but are they tied to the device or are they tied to the account? Would I be able to download those apps for free on my other 2 devices once I download them on the Air?

    The free apps with purchase of new devices are tied to your AppleID... once they are downloaded on a new device, you can sync them to other devices on your AppleID via iTunes sync, or download to other devices as you would any other previously 'purchased' item .

    Sounds like a win Win to me as long as the first device is brand new to get the free package of apps. and then being able to move them over and sync them to other devices.

    How do you get the apps free if you have an old iPad Mini and don't purchase a new device?

    You don't "get the apps free ... if you don't purchase a new device".

    You have to pay for them.
